LUD­HI­ANA: The two Pak­istani traders who had re­cently al­leged that they were as­saulted have with­drawn their com­plaint, but are an­noyed with the PHD Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­tries and Pak­istan World Trade mem­ber Khur­shid Bal­ras.

While Pak­istani traders Mo­ham­mad Azeem and his son, Faisal Azeem, expressed grat­i­tude for the love and hos­pi­tal­ity show­ered upon them by Lud­hi­an­vis, they said the ex­hib­tion or­gan­is­ers did not ut­ter a word of sym­pa­thy for them; they tried to please them by ad­judg­ing their stall as the best.

“We are here not only for busi­ness, we are here to share love and cul­ture,” the two said at a press con­fer­ence here on Tues­day. “What hap­pened on Fe­bru­ary 25 was un­for­tu­nate. We have no grudge against Lud­hi­an­vis.”

Af­ter read­ing about the in­ci­dent in news­pa­pers, some lo­cals vis­ited the Pak­istani traders and apol­o­gised for the in­ci­dent.

How­ever, the Pak­ista­nis were dis­pleased with the lo­cal ad­min­is­tra­tion and the po­lice for not pro­vid­ing them se­cu­rity af­ter the in­ci­dent. They said the au­thor­i­ties “mis­guided” the Pak­istani High Com­mis­sion by terming the in­ci­dent as a sud­den quar­rel.
